ALL LIVES MATTER

ACRES OF DIAMONDS

ON ASSIGNMENT

HEAVENLY CHOICES

SATAN'S PLOT



THE MUSIC OF LIFE

MY MIRACLE

HOPE AND FAITH

CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST JESUS

Live-streaming

THE WONDERS OF HIS LOVE

SPIRITUAL THINGS

AIN'T NO ROCK

20/20 Vision

PROTECTING OUR BLINDSIDE

HE CHOOSE ME

SEEN AND LOVED BY GOD

TREASURE BOX

SETTLED OUT OF COURT

JESUS KNEW

BASKET OF EGGS

The AGONY AND THE ECSTACY

IT IS A MATTER OF THE HEART

BLIND MEN

STAY IN YOUR LANE

THE MESSIAH'S SEAT

THE SILENT CRY

THE SINFULNESS OF SIN

THE GLORY OF GOD

MORE THAN JUST A BABE

GOD'S GUARDIAN ANGELS

SHAME, OH SHAME, AMERICA

Giving Thanks

 
Lord, I thank You for another year…
A year spent close to you.
I thank You for the many trials
You’ve seen me safely through.
 
I thank You for a year of health…
For each and every day.
Though sickness knocked upon my door,
Your Word chased it away.
 
I thank you for my husband, Lord…
Give him a hug or two.
I thank You for the seas You calmed
To anchor us in You.
 
I thank You for my children, Lord…
Sons strong and daughters fair.
I thank You that You understand
Each time I call their names in prayer.
 
I thank you for grandchildren, Lord…
And for every little “great.”
Chubby arms and dimpled smiles…
Good cause to celebrate.
 
I thank you for my family, Lord…
They mean so much to me.
Sisters, brother, nieces, nephews…
Those carved on our family tree.
 
I thank You for my friends, dear Lord…
The faithful and the true…
Who laugh with me and cry with me…
Then take my needs to You.
 
I thank You for my pastors, Lord…
For the church You’ve led me to…
Where Your Word goes out to heal my hurts
And builds my faith in You.
 
I’ve so much to be thankful for…
Just the privilege to pray.
Thanksgiving Day is much too short…
I must give thanks each day.

~~Dedicated To My Family And Friends~~
(I'm thankful for each of you)
 
Colossians 3:17
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed,
do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks
 to God the Father through him.
 
Ephesians 1:16
I have not stopped giving thanks for you,
 remembering you in my prayers.
 

Ephesians 5:20
always giving thanks to God the Father for

 everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ
